Geoffrey Landward is the Interim Commissioner of Higher Education. He previously served as deputy commissioner and secretary to the Utah Board of Higher Education. In addition to over a decade of public policy work, he has extensive executive leadership experience and 20 years of legal expertise in administrative law, education law, and employment law. He is a graduate of the J. Reuben Clark Law School.
Geoffrey also engages in freelance writing and editing. He recently started using only one space after periods, which has had astonishingly little impact on his life.
He is married—to an attorney no less—and has four oppressed children. Three cats live in his house, who mistakenly believe they can pay rent with dead mice and unending looks of disdain.
